Amarillo, TX - Thousands of residents in our area lost power, as a result of storms Monday night.

Xcel Energy spokesman Wes Reeves says more than 13,000 customers in Amarillo and the surrounding areas lost power after 8:00.

The company called out all available service personnel, and mobilized addition help from the New Mexico and South Plains districts.

The storms also flooded many locations around Amarillo.

Drivers were urged to avoid a series of I-40 intersections. Grant and 27th East of I-27 were also flooded.

There have been no serious injuries reported, but vehicles stranded at several locations, blocked some intersections.
